Being that it was so ridiculously early in the morning, Shinichi nearly missed him. He was groggy and irritable from having been jerked awake only half an hour ago to fetch an order of pastries for his neighbor. Actually, they were for his neighbor’s surrogate daughter. She was the kind of person you wanted to keep happy if you didn’t want to wind up sedated in the basement, getting poked and prodded with needles.
He let out a heavy sigh as he entered the shop, reaching up to brush his bangs back and managing to ruffle his hair even more. Had he even remembered to brush it before he left the house? Unlikely…
Another yawn, one of many that morning, but he almost choked when he set eyes on another patron in the bakery. It took a few seconds to recognize him out of the suit and hat but he felt like he could never forget his face completely. Just the sight of him had sent a chill down his spine and his whole body stiffened. How could he even think about grabbing that order now?
Deciding that Haibara would have to wait for her sweets he took a hesitant and slow step backward, trying to look as inconspicuous as possible and praying to whatever patron god of sneaky thieves that he could escape undetected. But as fate would have (and it seemed it always would) Shinichi had bumped into rack of small snacks, nearly toppling the batch and having to grab it in order to keep it upright.
It caused a decent amount of clattering and he suddenly couldn’t bring himself to look up, though not from embarrassment. He was terrified that the noise had alerted the other to his presence and he didn’t know what to do…

My internet keeps going in and out and Skype won’t send any of my messages but I have drafts saved for Love Week an other things.
I’m sorry it’s taking so long to get these out so if you’re a partner to any one of my muses please be patient with me. I’m even willing to extend the week because of these issues so we’ll definitely still get to do it!
But I’ve been at work all day and I’m tired to I’m going to try to fix the router in the morning and then I can get started!
Shinichi looked extremely unamused by the smoke and mirrors that this event was setting up with. In fact, he looked downright irritable. He had thought that this was going to be some silly Valentine’s event like they had at school every year, not a magic show.
So he shrugged it off for the time being and shooed the bird away.
